Trying to connect soundbar to JVC TV with no optical cable & RCA output

May 9, 2018
I recently bought a Ben Nevis soundbar from amazon, when setting it up I later found out my JVC lt-32n355a TV does not have either optical cable and RCA cable output.

The only way I can get the soundbar connected to the TV is by using an aux cable and then plugging it into my TV's headphone jack. When I do this, I only get audio coming out of the soundbar and not the TV, and I prefer to get audio coming out of both.

What can I do to solve this problem?

Most (all?) TVs, Radios, etc are designed in such a way that plugging headphones turns off build-in speakers. Unless you hack your TV, or are using external ATSC tuner / cable box - there's no way.
